100412: Galerie Elisabeth und Klaus Thoman Siegfried Anzinger – New pictures and sculptures

Galerie Elisabeth und Klaus Thoman Siegfried Anzinger – New pictures and sculptures 10.03.2012 – 05.05.2012 Great green light By Gesche Heumann Painting is the film that sticks the pigmentation of the colours with the movements of the painter onto the canvas. The canvas orientates itself on the painter’s decision as to how large it should be. The painter forms the theatrical soul of the painting. The painting that can be seen on the canvas springs from the painter's head, glance and movement. Sigmund Freud's reflections on the back room that we called the soul before we considered it wiser to call it the psyche were sometimes eye-opening to us regarding the statements made in art. The statements of the new pictures by Siegfried Anzinger – as depicted by their title, composition and figural settings – treat details of the story of the creation in different religious traditions, i.e. paradise appears next to the ancient Hades. Beside this appear Indians, naked and clothed, animistic, orgiastic and contemplative, even riding mopeds. One can possibly summarize the actions in the paintings as obscene stories but there are many pictures and accordingly, many actions. It's also possible to divide the pictures into grades of blasphemy or amounts of interwoven cultural quotations, statistically seen almost captivating. It might also be amusing to imagine that one were Sigmund Freud looking at the works of Siegfried Anzinger. The paintings of Siegfried Anzinger are based on limewater colour. Dealing with this doesn't allow for any Sfumato or varnish and demands prima tempera painting like a classical fresco where paint is applied until it dries and when it begins to dry, it's too late. You can't make any transitions, can't show any natural shadows and depict a space within the contrasting expansion; space must be created through perspective. The light in such pictures is always clear and yet gives a unified sense of space – it corresponds to the colour of the sky, if the sky is visible. Anzinger's light moves in a shimmering, sandy green whose yellow lights are never vulgar, whose red tones make an anchoring point in the picture and whose forward and receding movements give the impression of odourless, dust-collecting, very flat plants whose leaves are very long, smooth and tender. It's not a glowing green, not genuinely credulous, more an Iceland pony-like green that chortles in a buzzing sort of way. It's not a green that becomes lush in the summer but it's an irrational, buoyant green. It'll last longer than spring's glamour.
